Outside of work, Aubrey’s main sporting passion is rugby. He is a season ticket holder at Ulster Rugby and considers himself fortunate to have been in Chicago to witness Ireland beat the mighty All Blacks for the first time in 107 years.
He is an active member of the Board of Governors for his local school and in his spare time, he likes nothing more than to spend time with his wife and two girls at the beaches and walks that run along the spectacular Northern Irish coastline.
